mcdonald, a senior washington correspondent for cbc news off the canada. yet another national discussion about guns is under way, and it's so anti-rational, so politically cowardly, so unbearably stupid, that you have to wonder how a nation that has enlightened the world in so many other ways could wallow in this kind of discussion. does this target the united states' image in the eyes of many who look at this and say, really? another gun discussion? >> of course it does, and it does for appropriate reasons. i've been listening to some of the commentary, and you know, we keep talking about the evil of this person and the psychology and, you know, maybe the violence in the culture. all that could explain any one instance. it cannot explain the fact that, as i say, we have 15 times as much gun violence as other countries. we have to be willing to confront the reality that we're way out of line here, and we have something to learn from other people. >> all right. got to take a real critical look at our culture here in the united states. thanks, fareed. really appreciate it. >> re

rifle used by the beltway snipers more than a decade ago to wreak havoc here around the washington, d.c. area. it looks like a military weapon, certainly formidable, but it has elements that clearly make it a hunting weapon. and now the medical examiner in connecticut says all the wounds he knows of came from, quote, the long gun, which according to our understanding, is the bushmaster. which was confiscated from the shooting scene and apparently caused all the injuries to the victims, the medical examiner saw. one of the questions we're asking right now is whether that bushmaster .223 found on the scene would have been banned, either under the old federal assault weapons ban that passed during the clinton administration and expired during the george w. bush years. we asked a former top official of the federal bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms about that. and he said it just depends on how the gun was outfitted, and some of these things we don't know yet. listen. >> under the assault weapon ban, a weapon like the bushmaster would only have been banned if it had things like a fol
pressing issues that are also critical here in washington. there's the fiscal cliff obviously that needs to be resolved before the end of the year. so we'll have to see once those issues are dealt with, whether or not there will be this serious effort to deal with guns. >> we'll see. dan lothian reporting live from the white house this morning. looking at that picture there beside dan. we're actually awaiting a news conference from newtown. authorities expected to brief reporters any moment when that begins. we'll take it live for you. >>> let's head to newtown right now to check in with don lemon. good morning, don. >> carol, good morning to you. we are awaiting a news conference. they have been giving those news conferences just about every day, a couple times a day, updating the public on exactly what's happening here in newtown, giving specifically as many details as they can, not releasing a timeline, but yesterday releasing information about the guns, about the victim, and about the suspect as well. you know, by all accounts sandy hook principal dawn hochsprung, she did everything,
washington. the school the building itself is being worked on. remember i told you we had a secondary crime scene of the exterior of the school. our detectives have every one of them searching every one of them. we are beginning to release those back to their owners. slowly but surely we're beginning to complete the exterior part of the crime scene. the governor and lieutenant governor are on site that have been actively involved. one thing that is becoming somewhat of a concern and that is miss information is being posted on social media sites. there has been miss information coming from people posing as the shooter in this case, posing using other id's. mimicking this crime and crime scene and activity that took place in this community. there has been some things in somewhat of a threatening manner. it is important to know that we have discussed with federal authorities that these issues are crimes. they will be investigated statewide and federally. and prosecution will take place when people are identified. again, all information relative to this case is coming from these microphones and
supervised the atf's response a decade ago, a story i covered a lot, the washington, d.c. beltway sniper. so unfortunately, this is something you know a lot about. i want you to walk me through some of these weapons. in the press conference, the medical examiner said that everybody was shot with the same rifle. which would be i guess the bushmaster. so give us some more information about the bushmaster . 223 semiautomatic rifle. that certainly changes the facts in this case. obviously, the bushmaster is typically used in a longer-range shooting. it has more accuracy from a distance. it's odd that he would take the long gun into the school, because he could do just as much damage with the pistols. the one advantage with the rifle is typically you can load 30-round magazines typically during some of these tactical situations. they'll stack the two magazines, one upside down, finish shooting 30 rounds, push a button, flip the other one over as quickly as you can turn it, and now you have another 30 rounds to shoot. so the tactics -- what's odd with this whole thing that i find odd, we've heard
